Time Magazine named Atwater one of the 100 most significant people of 2005 for the tsunami research that culminated in this book. He joins American and Japanese scholars to trace a massive earthquake off the Northwest Coast that spawned a tsunami recorded in Japan. A rich array of graphic detail and narrative explains the creation, action, and lasting effects of earthquakes and tsunamis.

User Review  - Lauren - Goodreads

Reads like a research paper more than a book, but has a lot of interesting facts and pictures. Including a photo of bookworm trails through some of the source material. Read full review
